Is there a leftist bias in Australias Human rights commission?


Do bears??

Ive had a little look at the Australian human rights commissions “teaching aids”, which they provide to teachers and students. For the most part its all bleeding heart lefty “kumbyah” wankery. However there are enough questionable or leading resources included to bring into serious question the “impartiality” of the items provided for education. Lets face it, a teaching resource that favourably mentions Lenin cant be all bad eh!

 More below the fold….

Heres a few examples.

This is from their “face the facts” worksheets.

Asylum Seekers and Refugees

Activity 1: What’s it like to be a refugee?

The following activities will help students to:

  • identify reasons why people become refugees
  • explore the circumstances in which refugees flee their homes
  • encourage empathy with refugees
  • promote understanding of the spontaneous exodus experienced by many fleeing their home countries
  • encourage students to empathise with their flight

foster debate about priorities in a survival situation

Activity 1: What’s it like to be a refugee?

The following activities will help students to:

  • identify reasons why people become refugees
  • explore the circumstances in which refugees flee their homes
  • encourage empathy with refugees (why is this an outcome, isnt it enough to educate the children on the issue and leave them to draw their own conclusions?)
  • promote understanding of the spontaneous exodus experienced by many fleeing their home countries
  • encourage students to empathise with their flight

foster debate about priorities in a survival situation

So straight from the top the object is to propagandist to the children to make them feel empathy. Still surely that cant be all that bad…

Teachers may also wish to explore in more detail the five Convention reasons for fleeing persecution by providing specific individual or group examples. For example:

 

Race:                                     Albert Einstein fleeing Nazi Germany in 1933

Religion:                                The Dalai Lama fleeing Tibet after the Chinese take-over in 1950

Nationality:                            Bosnian refugees from the former Yugoslavia Membership of a particular social group/ Tamils fleeing Sri Lanka after 1948

Political opinion:                 Lenin fleeing Tsarist Russia in 1900

And a spectacular own goal there for the Human rights mob!! In what parallel dimension is Lenin’s being free to ferment the communist takeover of Russia a good thing? It can only point to a spectacular blindness to the evil of Lenin by the human right commission. 

The rest of this document is pretty standard boilerplate “pretend you are a refugee crap”, no sign of “how do I pick a non-refugee applicant from a genuine one if both have deliberately destroyed their documents, or anything complex like that.

  

In a second worksheet for the students they are encouraged to access this website http://media.socialchange.net.au/using_media/11.html That link appears not to work, but this link gives you an idea of the type of campaigns the promoted organisation runs.

http://www.media.socialchange.net.au/designs/index.html And whos one of their clients? Why its the human rights commission…

Its a little odd to find an apparently politically impartial organisation referring students to a website aimed at implementing “social change”, especially when it is of an extremely lefty bent!

Id like to say In surprised, but having seen the head of the commission make a goose of himself in person at Port Hedland Im just convinced the whole department is off to the left of the labour party.

 

Shut it down, salt the earth and start anew, the institution is another leftist sanctuary.

 

  

After all Jesus was a refugee to..... Just like Lenin....

    It’s the ‘cut and paste’ ideology which secures children’s minds.

    It’s a toughie, man. Both me and my girl want to move back to Australia one day. Yet my best option would be to be a teacher back home. I’m good at it. I enjoy it.

    Yet to dive into that cesspool that is the teachers’ unions in Oz… that’s a tough one.

    My mum was a teacher for 40+ years and the treatment she received right at the end of her career was abominable.

    Yet there’s hope, and I don’t mean Obama. Along with the DVD of Not Evil Just Wrong are free teaching aids for showing the documentary in class.

    One can only hope AGW will be a history lesson in 15 years time.

    I’m sorry that your mother felt disatisfied, the left must have infiltrated her school.
